DFF Draft Coverage: Tamorrion Terry signs with Seahawks

Tamorrion Terry | FSU                           6’2” 207 lbs.                       3/14/1998 (Age 23)

Tamorrion Terry went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft. He was signed as a priority undrafted free agent (UDFA) by the Seattle Seahawks minutes after the draft. 

COLLEGE PRODUCTION

Tamorrion Terry had 118 receptions for 2,221 yards in his three-year college career at FSU. Terry entered college on the older side as a 21-year-old redshirt freshman but made an immediate impact once he got on the field. He caught 35 receptions for 744 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman but truly broke out as a sophomore catching 60 passes for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns. Terry’s 2020 season was cut to just four games to a knee injury he underwent surgery for in October leading to him inevitably opting out. For that reason, we will focus on his 2019 season in teams of production. In 2019 he accounted for 32.20% of his team’s offensive production and 2.94 adjusted yards per team pass attempt. For context, Jerry Jeudy accounted for 2.98 adjusted yards per team pass attempt in 2019. 

Terry profiles as the typical X wide receiver. He’s an outside target and deep threat with a dynamic combination of size and speed that could potentially open up a team’s vertical attack. He is explosive as he accelerates through routes and has the keen ability to maintain position on his opponent’s downfield. Scary Terry has also shown the ability to blaze past defenders after the catch, even if he ran an underwhelming 40 times, the tape shows different. For all of his strength’s he really struggles with route diversity and ball skills. Drops were a notable issue throughout his career so he will certainly need to clean that up at the next level. 

ATHLETIC TESTING

At his FUS Pro Day, Tamorrion Terry measured in at 6’2” and 207 lbs. Which equates to a BMI of 26.04. His best 40-yard dash time was 4.52-seconds which equates to a 99.19-Speed Score, and at 6’2” that is a 103.28-Height Adjusted Speed Score. Terry’s speed score was just average but his HASS did place him within the 72nd percentile again calling attention to his electrifying combination of size and speed.

Terry posted just 15 reps on the bench press at 207 lbs. He recorded an underwhelming vertical of 32.5 at 6’2” but put together a very impressive broad jump of 126-inches. While Terry has some exciting qualities and skills there are plenty of concerns. He’s already 23 years old and has a breakout age of 20.5 which means his odds hit hitting as a top 24 receiver are very limited, especially if he’s drafted outside the first round (which clearly did not happen). He actually has a 33% chance at best if selected in the second round and odds drop dramatically from there. Terry also dealt with a nagging knee injury that eventually led to him missing the majority of his final season at FSU so health could present long-term issues. Terry is a wide receiver with a ton of upside but there much of his game requires some polishing. 

DRAFT ANALYSIS

Rapid Reaction to Draft Capital: Awful

Rapid Reaction to Landing Spot: Average

The Seattle WR room is relatively sparse behind all-star receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, with another older rookie joining the squad in D’Wayne Eskridge. Seattle did sign some other bigger name UDFAs, so Terry has stiff competition not just with the other receivers, but with other players on the team to land a roster, or even practice squad spot.

FANTASY INSIGHTS

Terry is a big, explosive downfield threat, but he faces long odds to make this team. If he is fully healthy, he can probably make a final roster spot or earn a practice squad spot on an NFL franchise. His lack of draft capital is an obvious disaster to his career arch. This is not a player to waste draft capital on in owners’ dynasty rookie drafts. He is a priority waiver add after the draft to stash on the taxi squad.
